Zoë Kravitz Opens Up About The "Bittersweetness" Of Breakups Following Divorce From Karl Glusman

Breakups don't have to be hard.

Celebrity News

Breakups are often viewed as hard, messy, hurtful and downright sad, but Zoë Kravitz has a more unique way of describing it. The Hollywood actress divorced from Karl Glusman after 18 months of marriage. The former couple got engaged in 2018 after meeting in 2016 and had an intimate wedding at her father's, legendary artist Lenny Kravitz, Parisian home in May 2019.


However, the two would abruptly split in 2020 after news of the High Fidelity star filing for divorce in December of the same year hit the internet. Since the shocking divorce, Zoë and Karl have not revealed the cause of their breakup, but that is about to change.

Zoë, who is also the daughter of talented actress Lisa Bonet, sat down with AnOther Magazine to dish on her upcoming projects such as a new album. While she was in the band Lolawolf for roughly eight years, she will be releasing a solo project in which she says is "about love and loss."

She also revealed she's been writing the album over "a long stretch of time" and it will capture the range of her emotions.

"I got married. I got divorced. Separations, breakups are sad but are beautiful things too. It's about the bittersweetness, that beginning and that end. It's so complex, that space, when you're in between heartbroken and mourning the loss of something and excited for what's ahead of you."

What an elegant and mature way to look at breakups? We're sure the album is going to fire.

Zoë isn't the first artist to make songs about heartbreaks and she damn sure won't be the last.

Mary J. Blige is the queen of songs about heartache and pain in relationships and as of recent, people have raved over Summer Walker's 2019 album Over It where she focuses on all those feels.

Although Zoë only spoke on the roller coaster of feelings that happen after a breakup, there's no doubt that she has experienced the ups and downs in life all around. But in this new phase of her life, the 32-year-old is feeling happy and loving her thirties.

"Can I just stay here, though? This is nice. It's great making better decisions, knowing what works for you, knowing what feels good to you, knowing what real fun is, not just the idea of fun. We're in a sweet spot. We need to enjoy it and not pretend to be adults that don't do fun things anymore. It should be. I'm in my thirties. Let's do more things."

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
